Emerald Coast Theatre Company will focus on the ‘simple bare necessities’ this spring with the launch of three children’s musical theater programs centered around Walt Disney’s 1967 animated kids’ adventure film, ‘The Jungle Book’.

Specially adapted from the classic film, this musical includes favorite Disney tunes, such as ‘The Bare Necessities,’ ‘That’s What Friends Are For’ and ‘I Wan’na Be Like You’.

ECTC’s immersive three-month long program incorporates theater games, learning songs and simple choreography, and, of course, bringing to life the story of Mowgli, Baloo and King Louie. Inspired by the Rudyard Kipling’s book of the same name, The Jungle Book tells the story of Mowgli, achild raised in the Indian jungle by wolves, as his friends Bagheera the panther and Baloo the bear try to convince him into leaving the jungle before the evil tiger Shere Khan arrives.
